At The Jefferson School we are reimagining education — one engaged, motivated child at a time.
The Jefferson School believes that children who are actively engaged in hands-on, nature-centered, experiential learning:
- are more readily able to absorb new ideas and integrate them with their current knowledge.
- develop a passion for both lifelong learning and global awareness.
- develop an early connection to the natural world as well as a desire to preserve it.
To that end, The Jefferson School strives to offer an exceptional, active learning environment of nature-centered strategies for children from preschool through grade 8.
The Jefferson School is recognized as a leader in developing and promoting relevant, hands-on, nature-centered educational strategies for students from preschool through grade 8.
